Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt, and École Normale Supérieure, Paris
Since 2014 the Critical Theory Cluster has organized an annual four-day Tri-University dissertation workshop that rotates between Frankfurt, Paris, and Evanston. The network invites faculty and PhD students from all three institutions and provides an opportunity for collaboration with international peers. Additionally both institutions have co-tutelle agreements with Northwestern that enable graduate students to pursue a dual PhD degree.

Humboldt Universität of Berlin
Each year two graduate students affiliated with the German department have the opportunity to teach at Northwestern’s undergraduate summer program in Berlin: Berlin – Global City in the Center of Europe, which is hosted in cooperation with Humboldt Universität. The two-month program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to study abroad where they are introduced to contemporary German and European affairs with a particular focus on the city of Berlin, its history, culture, politics, and philosophy. Classes are taught by Northwestern and Humboldt faculty.

The interdisciplinary dissertation workshop on Queer Temporalities and Media Aesthetics is organized jointly by the Critical Theory Cluster and the Media Studies Department at Ruhr-Universität Bochum. The workshop provides a platform for faculty and graduate students from both universities to discuss current dissertation projects. The inaugural workshop in 2016 was held at Northwestern University, and has since been organized in 2017 (Northwestern) and 2018 (Ruhr-Universität Bochum).
